Visit successful in clearing misunderstandings: PM Oli
Ramesh Lamsal, NEW DELHI: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli has said his State Visit to India has been successful in clearing bilateral misunderstandings.
Talking to representatives from the Nepali government media here Sunday, the concluding day of his visit, the PM claimed the visit had been successful in building the mutual trust by completely removing misunderstandings between the two countries. There were rumours that democracy was at risk in Nepal or it wanted to throw a card towards neighbours which had now been completely wiped out.
He was of the view that his special meeting with his Indian counterpart held Saturday had taken the Nepal-India relations to a new height.
The PM said that the visit has developed environment of confidence from the process to develop Raxaul-Kathmandu Railway Service, transporting goods to Nepal via the route of Ganges River and India’s promptness to support Nepal.
According to him, Nepal’s gesture as a sovereign nation and its policy of non-interference and Nepal’s capacity to take its decision on its own was exhibited during the meetings with Indian President, Vice President and Prime Minister.
The PM argued that the visit prepared a basis for establishing Nepal-India relations on equal footing, mutual interests and respects to suit the changed context of the 21st century.
He said that the respect shown by India towards Nepal government has wiped out various rumours. A joint mechanism would be formed to forward past agreements inked between the two countries.
Indian private sector, as he said, was ready to invest in Nepal.
